Green california schools summit & expo
The Green California Schools Summit is organized by the non-profit Green Technology, a partner with Cal/EPA for EEI outreach and teacher training.
The Summit offers a once-a-year chance to get up to date on the technologies, policies, teaching strategies and best practices that are contributing to progress in the Golden State’s green schools movement.
THE WHALE is narrated by Ryan Reynolds and tells the true life story of a young, wild killer whale - an orca - nicknamed Luna, who loses contact with his family on the coast of British Columbia and turns up alone in a narrow stretch of sea between mountains, a place called Nootka Sound where he attempts to befriend the local people. THE WHALE has just been named a Critics' Pick by the New York Times.
NATIONAL TOUR BEGINS OCTOBER 15 AT UCLA ROYCE HALL
Performance and purpose collide in a world stage premiere that illuminates the plight of the Pacific Islands. Scientists report the vulnerable coral atolls of Kiribati Tokelau and Tuvalu are already experiencing rising sea levels as the result of global warming and climate change. Thirty-six dancers and musicians express their deep connection to nature and their ancestral past through multi-part harmonies, poetry, and gracious movement, cascading over dynamic rhythms and inspiring us all to be better stewards of our shared planet.
